Gellert (Gerard) was an Italian missionary who was to convert the native Hungarians into Christians. However, in the 10th – 11th century there were many Hungarians who resisted the new faith. St Gellert was killed by pagan Hungarians: the bishop was hurled to his death in a spiked barrel in 1046 from the Gellert Hill (supposedly, the monument marks the spots of the brutal execution). #exploring #adventure #walkabout #lotsofwalking #Saintsberolling #Buda #Budapest #Hungary
After running in the early morning, and walking all the rest of the morning, doing over 10000 steps before 12pm. Now is chill time before more walking in the evening... Love this holiday #tuscany #lucca #chilltime #lotsofwalking
Roman Aquaduct, Mérida
This was spectacular, even at dusk. The train line runs right past, this would be a scenic daily commute!
Templo de Diana
The best thing about Mérida is that it is a regular town, then you walk round the corner and find a Roman temple in amongst all the shops and restaurants!
